Here’s this week’s writing excerpt, completed just yesterday. This story has a strong supernatural side, similar in style to Indiana Jones.

That’s part of the reason why I’m considering spinning this off as a separate series. Anyway, enjoy!

“In the room after that one.”
“You can see them?” Jocelyn asked.
“Not easily,” he replied. “But yeah, I caught a glimpse of some people trekking that way.”
My eyes widened. “They’re trying to trap us.”
